Fountain on the Elms Grounds The Great Lawn at the Elms

The Elms was modeled after the mid-eighteenth century French Château d'Asnières. Edward Julius Berwind, a coal baron, hired architect Horace Trumbauer to design the Elms. Completed in 1901, this was one of the first houses in Newport, Rhode Island (USA) to be fully electrified. On its grounds the Elms contains the elaborate Classical Revival gardens with decorated fountains and detached carriage house.
